preparing for your headshot session


A good beginning is half the battle


Not many people are eager to go in for a headshot session, but it doesn't have to be this way. My promise to yoI will use my equipment and knowledge to make you look your best and come out of it with the portrait that you are proud of. This will take some time and preparation, but it will be worth it.


Wardrobe plays an essential role in any kind of photo session, but it is extremely important when we are talking about business headshots. That's where we have to thoroughly think things through and choose clothes wisely for a polished, professional look. When people think of a professional headshot fitted jackets and suits come to mind first, but business dress code has evolved over the years and has become more relaxed and casual. There is no right or wrong answers when it comes down to style, it is all about personal preference and business that you are in. To help you determine which direction you may want your wardrobe to take you, here are some questions to ask yourself:


What level of formality does my industry dictate?

How relatable do I wish to look?

What mood am I trying to evoke? Bright and cheerful, neutral or serious?

Is this how I look most of the days at my job?

Would someone in my industry choose


  • Have a few options for clothing and remember, layering is your best friend! This is the fastest way to change up the look with minimal effort. Cardigans and scarves work great for this. 
  • Make sure your nails look neat. This may be a perfect time to pamper yourself and get a manicure. Check out the Nirvana Beauty Lounge https://www.nirvanareno.com/book


What to Wear

  • Most importantly, wear clothes that are comfortable and that make you feel good. Today's business world is quite more relaxed than it used to be, so do not overdress. Keep it simple and neat, yet professional.
  • Avoid sleeveless tops. For most people the uncovered armpit area looks unflattering. 
  • Make sure your jacket and shirt fit you well and are pressed. It is close to impossible to take out wrinkles in Photoshop.
  • Dresses are excellent options too, they look classy and elegant.
  • Avoid very tight, busy patterns and stripes like plague (or Covid). They don't look good on digital files. (gives a weird artifact called moir√®)
  • M
  • It is best to wear neutral, calm colors. This brings attention to your face rather than your clothing. 
  • Wear some jewelry, it is a very nice touch for a polished look, however, don't overdo it, the main subject should still be you, and not a statement jewelry piece.


What to Bring


  • Please bring your head, a good attitude and a friendly smile :)
